Selfless spirit is a really good idea.. I'm adding it to the maybeboard because i'm broke as all hell right now. I'll play around with it and see what i can do.
An aside: I played the deck (stand-in galore) against some great decks including GW Humans, RW thing in ice, and BU Aetherworks. It steamrolled almost every game. Honestly, the deck draws whatever it needs in the sense that anything will further the ramp. I've been so excited to fully build this and it's delivering!

Yahenni, Undying Partisan would be great in this deck! Can grant the team haste with odric, and if you sac a creature before combat, indestructible too! It's a WONDERFUL choice!

i've tested this deck all week and unfortunately i think i've come to the conclusion that yahenni just doesnt make the cut. the haste and indestructible are nice, but a 2/2 for 3 mana just isnt worth it, even with his counters ability. the creatures are too valuable to sac to him unless you have gideon pumping out tokens, and if you sac a creature before combat to try to get the indestructible for all from odric, they can still kill him at instant speed and then you got 2 for 1'ed. sac'ing a creature in response to lethal damage to yahenni rarely feels worth it since it usually costs you in other, more ueful keywords. if you absolutely need indestructible, i suggest 2 Archangel Avacyn Flip, 3 Selfless Spirit and 4 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. as far as haste goes, add a couple Aether Hub for colorless and one time white or black mana, then throw in 2-4 Reality Smasher. once you slap some more keywords on that bad boy, he is absolutely devastating and he is very tough to remove. he dodges Grasp of Darkness and Fatal Push, and any removal that can actually hit him forces the opponent to 2 for 1 themselves. seriously, use smasher, he will win you games.

I totally agree with UmmmmmmLOL, Reality Smasher provides two keywords, and avoids many of the meta game removals. (however you would need to run Aether Hub which is another good thing for mana fixing other than for smasher). As far as Archangel Avacyn Flip goes, the price may be the set back on it. But play testing it would be a great way to determine if it's worth it.

An add on to my most recent comment, have you considered Gisela, the Broken Blade, and Angel of Invention?. They are good keyword cards, however they are considerably easy to deal with, noting that Harnessed Lightning and Galvanic Bombardment are still up and about.

Gisela is pretty good, since even if they kill her, the looming threat of Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is always around the corner, you can also use bruna to bring back odric or something, but a 7 mana spell in a deck like this might not be your friend.

Honestly I've been having better luck testing a g/w version which enables Blossoming Defense, Beastcaller Savant, Verdurous Gearhulk and one of my personal favourites Duskwatch Recruiter Flip. But that's just preference I guess.

Great job on this!!! I have been trying to do something similar with Black / White but I don't have Drana...which is a huge piece of this. It went toe to toe with my R/W Human standard deck from last rotation Straight Outta Hanweir I love that you have a ton of ways to flip Lone Rider as well.
I have only been playing since Shadows...played a bit when I was really young but things have changed so much. Congrats on getting #1 the deck is super strong.

Sorry for the drop in my absence, life got in the way. Thanks for the compliments! The deck is still running really strong! :)
